A bit of a slog, but well worth it. Relationships, marriage, politics, love, hate, lust, music, the environment, hypocrisy, deceit, cruelty, deception, loyalty, kindness -- it's all here and beautifully illustrated in a brisk, compelling story-telling style. Franzen is a marvelous observer of the human condition, a brilliant writer, and I cannot wait to read another of his books. Highly recommend.
